to be speaking at a two-night charity event this week, benefiting the Southern Poverty Law Center - an organization that uses education and litigation to fight bigotry and hate.
The event sold out so quickly that I didn't even have time to promote it! Initially it was only to be one night, but a second night was added and that sold out in a flash as well.
Each speaker will be presenting a historical speech - I chose Barbara Jordan's speech from the 1976 DNC. I hope to do it justice - to walk in her shoes, even briefly, is a tall order.

My hope is that this will inspire, foster thought, provide comfort, and light a fire where so needed.
